We’ve all got our issues.
Maybe you feel like life just isn’t going your way, or you’re afraid that you don’t measure up to other people’s expectations. Perhaps you have a hard time managing your temper or have someone in your life you just can’t forgive. Maybe you’ve had a hard childhood you don’t want to remember. Perhaps you’re in an unhealthy relationship.
We deal with our “issues” every day in one form or another; the problem is, after a while, they start to feel . . . normal.
The problem is that when they become normal and small, we forget that we have access to the power of Christ–a power that can transform our everyday weaknesses into our greatest strengths and gifts.
Susie welcomes Christian counselor, ministry leader, and regular mom Nicole Unice to explore the ordinary issues that are keeping us from the full and free life we were meant to have. They dig into Nicole’s book, She’s got issues: Seriously good news for the for stressed-out, secretly scared control freaks like us and show us how to let God freely shape our character–and transform our lives from ordinary to abundant.
Nicole emphasizes that many women want to deal with stuff on their own. She’s seen this tenancy over and over again in her counseling practice.
“It’s a striking thing to hear women say to me, sort of in a secretive way, ‘I just feel like this is too little for God. I got myself into this, I need to get myself out of it.'”
Many of us think we can handle life on our own.
Small as certain issues may be, we still need to surrender to God and let him manage our lives. He doesn’t call us to struggle alone.
He is there. He is waiting.
